My song "Burbank" All tracks and instruments are me. This is my song for the next Randy Rhoads CD Project.

http://soundclick.com/share?songid=7735536


My latest multi-track "fun" sessions .

Mr. Crowley I doubled the solos and rythyms quadrupled the interlude. This is mixed to the master tracks from the GH library.

http://share.myflare.com/vhxP8M



Crazy Train I tracked the guitars playing along with the GH Masters and I tried to brighten the vocal track a bit. 2 guitars on rythym L and R and triple tracked solo. I used Reaper 3 and a countless list of VST plugins.. lol


http://share.myflare.com/W4gMNk





Mr. Crowley tracked this to a backing track I got off the net in Cubase. 2 rythym tracks.

http://share.myflare.com/rDccdp





Diary of a Madman Did the whole tune, multi layered guitars and was expeirementing with cabinet simulation on this. I tried to get the feel of the original.

http://share.myflare.com/Dn5Jrn





Believer I double tracked everything, made all the sounds on the guitar and enjoyed it! lol

http://share.myflare.com/rXpw7M





Revelation (Mother Earth) ending I did two tracks in two takes using Cubase. Pretty proud of how close I got both takes. Tracks are panned hard left and hard right.

http://share.myflare.com/TWWMTT





OTM guitar solo. I dont use a whammy bar so the end of the solo is a tapping lick I came up with for it.

http://share.myflare.com/jdcQsY








These are not Randy tunes, just other songs of my youth that I enjoyed re-doing

Bark at the Moon Used the Guitar Hero backing music and VOX. Two tracks in two takes, didn't stop til the end!

http://share.myflare.com/jc4jcW


Surfing with the Alien no whammy, no problem.. lol

http://share.myflare.com/hDQH4L




Def Leppard (Bringing on the Heartbreak) Pretty good re-dux all guitars doubled and harmonies are really real

http://share.myflare.com/yHBRqb



Stairway to Heaven solo one of the best captured moments in Page's life.

http://share.myflare.com/6xdxNy

Hi

I like your tone. In Bark At The Moon especially it was very violin like.

Matt

Thanks!, I use my Gallien Kueger 250ML amp. It is a 2 channel 50x50 watt amp, I go direct stereo out right into my line in on the computer.. I was surprised at how ok it sounds for being a direct signal... I think it gets that violin tone from the two seperate stereo tracks running.. so in a sense there is 2 signals playing right and 2 playing left but they are the same takes respectively.. Do you have any pointers on any exercises I could do to help me utilize my middle and ring fingers in with my normal picking, I checked out some of your classical guitar links and I would really like to start doing more right hand techniques.. I am basically an alternate/sweep picker..I've just started incorperating directional picking and that is playing games with my mind.. LOL have a good one

Hi Dik

Thanks for the explanation of your sound, it really grabbed me.

In regards to any exercises I think the best place to start getting the right hand going is to juts start with 2 octave scales using the index and middle finger.

Back onto your playing...please post some more. I liked your attittude too in the Chelsea thread. I can see where your coming from

All the best

Matt

Nice job dude! I too like your take on 'Bark at the Moon', but the Phrygian Improv is cool too - kinda Dimeola-ish.

Thanks jt, I am a big fan of Di Meola's, during the muted runs on the high strings I was deffinately going for an Al effect, although my technique is nowhere nearly as clean as his I'm glad someone could hear what I was attempting to do there.. lol I did BATM because I think Jake's vibrato is second to none, and I've loved those leads even years before I picked up a guitar..

Hi Dik

I have just lsistened to I Don't know twice back to back. Why...because that tone is just so fresh and you can hear the electricity in it...It is crackling with a real intensity. Nice work 8)

Cool playing...and nice vocal chords too! :D

Take care

Matt

WOW.. I thought I hammerd the interlude BAD!! (as in not good) it makes me cringe when I hear it... LOL Thanx Chas.. it means alot cause I am very self critical of myself.. can't really enjoy a "sit and listen" to myself most of the time.. Yeah I canniblized that little harmonic "arpeggiation" thing from an old Dweezil Zappa song.. it fit right in when I was messing around LOL... Thanx again!

I re-recorded my take on "You Lookin' at Me" (Lookin' at You) with a backing track, I also double tracked it too! enjoy! :D
I also noticed a mis-nomer on my Bark at the Moon take, the first solo is digitally doubled (oops!) but the rythyms and outro are true doubles.. sorry about that.. (I thought man that aint right) lol

Thanks Grunt! I have been playing a little over 20 years now.. jeezus time flies! I got my first guitar on christmas of 1986 and have been playing since.. I kind of put my playing on the back burner about 4 years ago cause I was working a job that took all my time and was paying me great money, but that job had nothing to do with music and I began longing to play again so I got serious again about a year ago and I also re-trained my right hand technique from the ground up (so to speak) and I am feeling glad I did because my playing is always improving now instead of staying at a plateau and not going anywhere like it used to.. Thanks again for the feedback and keep up the routine yourself IMO you are doing well.

well, the clip of me playing the solo from one of my old bands for the song "Coffee Breath".. I'd only been playin 7 years at that point. that is the funny thing about chops.. if you do a routine of scale practice and finger excercises your speed and accuracy will keep developing and then all of a sudden you'l' notice you can play a heck of a lot of things you never could before seemingly out of nowhere. (that is how it happened for me anyhow) I remember trying to learn the 2nd solo in Mr. Crowley when I had only been playing about 2 years at the time and it gave me alot of stress trying to get that one down.. so I gave up on it and went to the wood shed and in about 2 weeks I came back to it and presto I could do it! so keep those exercises and scales rolling and it will all come soon enough, for sure it will be nothing like 20 years! it will be sooner than later I promise you that!

you want to meet a really mean and heartless teacher, but he will whip your fingers right into shape... go get a metronome and at first you and he will not see eye to eye.. but he always wins the argument! LOL they are really great for transition development and mandatory for getting your sense of timing correct!

Hi DemonDik

I just listened to Tonight and couldn't hear the 'hitch'. I am using computer speakers so it could be not apparant on them...sounded fine to me!

Mr Ceowley was nicely flowing and a good mix. You definitely have a tone and a style that is quite identiably you. I said the same to Des about the way he executes his vibratos....it screams Des 8) just like your tone and phrasing are your musical fingerprint scream you.

That was a very clean version though, especially given that it is just one shot all the way though. Hats off to you.

I wonder if there is a way to even eq the sound more, so that it is even more violin like. I think if you are gifted with a sound or tone that stands out from the 'mass' then capitalise on it..don't be modest with it.

Again an enjoyable solo, cheers Michael.

Matt
